[OS X TeX] Issue with Multiple Bibliographies

I have recently installed MacTex and using TexShop in conjunction  
with Bibdesk for beginning to compile my thesis.
So far I have been able to get it all working together and  
producing .tex documents with .bib files.  The problem comes when I  
try to create multiple bibliographies in one .tex file.

I am initially looking to produce a simple bibliographical document  
without any written text or citations and wanted to
separate my list out into, Primary, Secondary and Tertiary sources  
(effectively three .bib files).

I am using Texshop Version 2.10beta2 (237) on a Powermac G4 1Ghz MMD,  
OS 10.4.7. MacTeX.dmg (09/06/2006) Installed. The (one entry test  
pri.bib and sec.bib) bib files were generated from Bibdesk Version 1.2.7

Having looked around the net, sofar I have tried , multibbl,  
multibib, bibunits with bibtexall, and natbib and natchapter, none of  
which I can get to work with Texshop with more than a single .bib  
file.  The typical error I get is;

--This is BibTeX, Version 0.99c (Web2C 7.5.5)
--The top-level auxiliary file: multibib.aux
--I found no \citation commands---while reading file multibib.aux
--I found no \bibdata command---while reading file multibib.aux
--I found no \bibstyle command---while reading file multibib.aux
--(There were 3 error messages)

I have read that there is an issue using Texshop with multibib but  
that it can be done. Being a beginner I am just not seeing the  
light.  I posted more detail on the Texshop forum which give more  
info here;


If anyone can offer a way in which I can get Texshop to work with  
multiple bibs it would be great. Or offer another working solution  
for this task.
